The challenges of a global pandemic in the past year highlighted concerns about crowded city living, and made the benefits of green-and-clean residential areas an important consideration for many Filipinos.

Indeed , a growing body of international studies are linking “green space” with better health. The American Heart Association, for example noted reduced heart-disease risk to neighborhood “greenness” – neighborhoods with substantial open spaces and parks planted with trees, leafy plants, and grass. Tree canopies are especially associated with better health outcomes, lower risk for diabetes and hypertension, and reduced odds for depression and evenAlzheimer’s.

Developed by the Active Group of Companies, the Mount Malarayat Golf & Country Club and Residential Estates is acknowledged as the best address in Lipa, Batangas. It is no wonder then that real estate within Mount Malarayat are bestsellers, like Th e Alcove at Mount Malarayat.
